I think he does, only player besides Wayne and Mario to net two consecutive seasons of 90+ assists, I believe he is also one of the highest scoring players in the last decade too. 1,000 pts in under a 1,000 games, in the low scoring era. Numerous awards. Only thing holding him back is his lack of success in the post season, which I don't think should matter THAT much. I wouldn't say he's on par with Marcel Dionne, but I do think he should be considered one of the best players without a cup in a certain era.
Anyway, I think that if you really stood out in a short period of time then you deserve to be in. Neely, I think, deserves to be in because he's in the very elusive 50/50 club and was considered one of the best players when he wasn't injured.
Ovechkin, IMO, has had an even better career then Neely so far. Even in a poor year he's still 5th in the league for goals.
